Wreath When I was a kid, my siblings and I got an advent calendar every year. Beginning on December 1, we'd open a window every day until December 25th to find a little gift, a piece of candy, a coin, etc. It was a fun tradition that I find sadly lacking in my adult life.

This year, I'm taking steps to remedy that by celebrating the upcoming holiday season with a new type of advent calendar. That's right, it's an Advent Calendar of Books. Beginning December 1 I'll highlight a book or an author each day until Christmas, December 25.

I've been fortunate to read so many great books this year, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate the season than by inspiring others to buy and read books.

See you on December 1!

    GREAT idea Holly! We love books and advent calendars too (but not the funky chocolate you’ll usually find.)
    I’ll have to come up with a new family advent calendar this year.

    Hunger Games better be on that list, and Liar too! I would love to do a guest post, if you have room.
